Did you take screens of your suspension? It's been forever since I got purg'd, I usually just get banned.

Seems to subside the fact that a suspension is a form of punishment, thus being able to post if a mod lets you (which would likely create tons of drama) seems like a let off. Rules are rules, just stick to them or leave tbh

I have a better suggestion: Change the 'Suspended' user group to 'Vacation' since uppity posters who get suspended need a break from the forums every time.

I think you are missing the point. Essentially the "suspended" and "banned" user groups are the same. Currently, there is no real purpose to having two separate groups for the same thing. What I'm offering is a suggestion on making the "suspended" group different.
I get what you're saying but it's not really a problem is it, the main difference is users can see if a person will be able to post one day or not.

So you're saying users (such as yourself) will have problems if people who you think don't deserve to post are able to?

I'm 100% sure it would be a good thing if being suspended forces people to make better, more constructive posts. It's a good habit to have.

Honestly I didn't learn anything from being "suspended" ("purgatory" at the time) that I didn't learn from being banned. There were only 2 other people in purg with me at the time (John-O and FireWolf aka Conflagrated) so it was basically like a chat room daycare where we spammed topics that would only get 2 or 3 replies and pretended to play nice (except John-O).

The only highlights were when me and FireWolf posted random maps and screens knowing full well that only the admins could see it. That was the only constructive moment I remember and I can't guarantee that a member who's not a mapper would do the same, it was kind of like the only thing TO do, Metal basically said that we had no set duration, we would be in there until we posted civilly enough times to be deemed worthy of freedom.


Just ban people. "Suspension" should just mean "temp ban" whereas "BANNED" should mean "perm ban nevercomingback".

Hello guys.

Sorry for the bump but I shall let you know that I had a bit of a look into this and quite frankly Decay is right. Theres not much distinction between being suspended and being banned.

Since I now have spare time in my hands though I will be working out a way to change it based on Decay's suggestion. Not sure when we can expect this to occur though as I have a fair bit of shit to discuss now in relation to this (just to work out what is suitable and if we got enough staff to get posts approved etc)

That being said, change is happening and will happen soon.

When the Suspension group was set up on these forums, it was originally intended to stop people from posting and that was it.
It was built as a workaround for the tempoary bans that pretty much used to be Banned on short timer. Now it seems it's mostly back at that again.
